How does L2DP achieve its aim?
This program connects leaders across disciplines, fields of work, and generations to support them in learning how to innovate at the scale of whole-system to address complex challenges in society. Modeled after a successful UID-MIT Sloan School of Management Executive Education program called IDEAS Indonesia (www.unitedindiversity.org), this program offers a unique learning platform that emphasizes Innovation - Dynamic - Education and Action towards Sustainable Economic Development that is socially and ecologically responsible that springs out of a better quality of self-awareness and collective-awareness.
L2DP uses Theory U (www.presencing.com) and other awareness-based approaches and change practices in the areas of strategic and innovative systems transformations, public policy, diplomacy and media handling. The use of Theory U as the social technology that empowers this unique collective learning process is referred to as presencing — meaning ‘to sense and actualize the highest future possibilities’. This program aims to enable high-potential leaders to meet, connect, and collectively create prototypes that explore societal innovation by doing.
|All learning activities in L2DP are designed with the following core principles in mind:
1. Across all levels of systems: integrating micro (individual), meso (team), macro (institutional), mundo (eco-system), meta (self-reflection). â€¨
2. Across all levels of intelligence: integrating open mind (IQ: intellectual knowledge), open heart (EQ: emotional and relational knowledge), and open will (SQ: self knowledge). â€¨
3. Systems Thinking: integrating methods and tools derived from 30 years of organizational learning research and practice to look at events from a systems perspective. â€¨
4. Deep immersion: using deep dive learning journey and refined observation and listening practices in order to connect with place-based communities and sites of disruptive innovation and change. â€¨
5. Science 2.0: using an approach to leadership and transformative systems change that is deeply rooted in scientific method that “lets the data talk to you”. However, the challenges of this century require an expansion of the concept of science beyond looking exclusively at exterior data (3rd person view) to also examine more subtle levels of human experience by bending the beam of scientific observation back upon the observer (2nd and 1st person view). â€¨
6. Presencing: using practices that allow leaders to connect to sense and actualize the emerging future and to contemplate the two root questions of creativity: Who is my Self? What is my Work? â€¨
7. Power of Intention: focusing on the fact that all great leadership is grounded in the capacity to connect with the deeper intentions that underlie the human journey, connecting us more deeply with ourselves, one another, and the living world around us.
8. Prototyping: translating intention into action by creating small living examples that allow us to explore the future by doing and by integrating the intelligence of the Head, Heart, and Hand. â€¨
What does the program timeline look like?
L2DP takes leaders on a 3.5-months learning journey consisting of 5 workshops (a total of 14 days of in-person meetings), complemented by individual and group activities in the Learning Spaces in-between workshops where leaders will practice their new insights in Personal, Professional, and Societal labs.
